Speaking of his final days on the set of Supernatural, Mark Sheppard doesn’t hold back. The actor has spoken on the subject many times at conventions and on social media. But the truth came out when he appeared on The CW alum Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast. “Inside you.” After discussing the topic of Supernatural, the host wondered if Sheppard’s departure from the show was simply a matter of contract termination.
“Well, no,” Sheppard replied (via YouTube). “It was even worse. It was pretty tasteless. It was like, “Oh, we don’t think we’ll have enough money to pick your option next year.” how the writers tried to eliminate one of their most popular characters. Sheppard didn’t even mind that Crowley’s demise had been in the works for some time.
He explained, “I think a particular showrunner – who I won’t name – tried to kill me for about four or five years, and it was just kind of funny because I kind of knew because I knew the rest of the writers, but I didn’t know . I don’t care. It wasn’t my problem.” Sheppard praised the show’s main characters, stating that his problems never had anything to do with them. These were behind-the-scenes deals that lacked tact and class.
